Betty White has given her fans an early Christmas gift with the announcement of a new Lifetime movie.
The network announced Thursday that White has signed on to star in an upcoming made-for-TV Christmas movie, Entertainment Weekly says.
Of the plot, Lifetime teased: “White’s character helps ready would-be Santas for the holidays. But a mystery looms: Is she actually Mrs. Claus?” Guess we’ll have to tune in and find out!
The Pop Culture legend and eight-time Emmy winner turned 98 on January 17.
White’s first Internet Movie Database credit is a 1945 short film where she played “Lou’s Girl,” opposite TV’s first ‘Superman,’ George Reeves, the very first ‘James Bond,’ Barry Nelson — and Star Trek’s DeForest Kelley.
Lifetime is describing its slate of holiday movies as being in “various stages of production” due to the pandemic shutdown.
